2023: Goodluck Jonathan will dump PDP for APC presidential ticket – Bamgbose

Published

A chieftain of the New Nigerian Peoples Party, NNPP, Barr. Olusegun Bamgbose, has said that former President Goodluck Jonathan will defect to the All Progressives Congress, APC, soon.

According to him, the ruling party is leaving no stone unturned towards ensuring that it clings to power at all cost.

Bamgbose pointed out that the APC does not care about the poor performance of the current administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The senior lawyer, in a chat with us, recalled that Senator Stella Oduah joined the party most recently, adding that Oduah’s movement was in preparation for Jonathan to equally decamp.

“The carrot they are dangling at him Is the possibility of handing over the APC presidential ticket to him. Jonathan has agreed in principle to cross over to APC before January 2022, he said quoting an insider in the former President’s camp.

“He has been brainwashed by some APC stalwarts that he is the most qualified Southerner to take over from Buhari, having honorably accepted defeat in 2015.

“They have been able to convince him that it’s time for payback for what he did in 2015,” he said.

“This is why Jonathan has not been showing any interest in the internal squabbles in his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

“Other things being equal, Jonathan will cross over to APC with a Governor, Senator to convince the APC that he is still politically relevant.

“APC has plans to unsettle PDP in order to politically neutralize them against 2023. It’s most likely that the PDP will break into factions soon.

“This is just the master plan.APC has concluded to zone the Presidency to South and will also ensure that PDP joins suit. They will go to any length to ensure that Atiku Abubakar is denied a ticket by PDP.

“The fear is that ethnic sentiments may not be ruled out if Atiku contests against a Southern candidate. Nigerians should however reject APC and PDP just like Jega once opined. Nigerians should look forward to a fresh hand come 2023.”
